Let’s start this new year off right with a healthy, easy to make veggie dish!
I spent the last two weeks in Maui with all my favorite people. I am in need of some serious veggies in my life! Rumor has it you can not live on lava flows and fish tacos alone…what?
How many blondes does it take to have a pool party? Three! Me, my BFF Raela, and gorgeous daughter Rachel!
You either love brussels sprouts or you hate them…no middle ground. We kinda love them around here. I use them a lot in my sheet pan dinners because they roast up at the same rate as chicken and potatoes….my other two fave things to throw on a sheet pan!
There isn’t too much to this recipe. Simply trim the sprouts, toss in some olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven and then drizzle on the balsamic reduction.
You can buy reduction most anywhere these days, but I just make my own. It’s a snap. Just pour balsamic vinegar in a saucepan, bring it to a simmer and let it reduce by half. Takes about 10 minutes. I usually make a double batch…it’s a great low cal sauce on chicken or pork.
I tossed in some red onion but it isn’t necessary. I just kinda liked the extra flavor and color. Garlic would work well too.
- Buy or make your balsamic reduction. Trader Joes and Kroger both carry it. Easy directions to make are in the recipe card below.
- Red onions are optional.

Have a great day guys!
